Acute Care Chief of Nursing Services CNO

This outstanding Short-Term Acute Care hospital in the San Francisco Bay Area is actively interviewing for a Chief of Nursing Services to oversee patient care operations. Join this historic medical center as the CNO, and lead an experienced administrative and clinical team.

The Chief of Nursing Services will oversee all operations that relate to nursing care in this community-based Acute Care Medical Center. Recognized at the state and national-level as a high-performing hospital, the Chief of Nursing will play in integral part in driving the processes and initiatives that make this possible. This person will take central responsibility for a nursing program which is known for superior patient outcomes, high-quality and compassionate care, and for over 70 years of supporting the community.

Reporting to the Chief Executive Officer, the Acute Care Nursing Chief will oversee an extensive nursing program and be supported by an amazing team. Directly reporting to the CNO, and supporting the hospital’s mission of superior patient care, is a tenured team of Nursing Directors who oversee Medical Surgical, Critical Care Services (ICU), the Emergency Department (ED), Perioperative Services, and many Specialty Nursing Departments.

The incoming Nursing Chief will take primary responsibility for ensuring effective operations throughout the Acute Care hospital and outpatient clinic system with regards to clinical and administrative activities. As the primary spokesperson for patient care, you’ll serve as an expert to the CEO and Board of Directors on matters pertaining to improving or maintaining the standards of quality care. The Chief of Nursing Services will work with other health system leaders to formulate and implement improvement projects that will touch service line quality, overall patient satisfaction, budgetary discretion, and long-term patient care strategy for a changing population.

Given the wide range of responsibilities required of the CNO, this person should have senior leadership experience as the head of multiple service lines in an inpatient / acute care environment. Experience in urban / city-based hospitals will certainly by valuable, as will leadership experience in integrated health environments with strong missions of community service and value.

The San Francisco Bay Area has something for every type of person. For those who enjoy the finer things in life, haute cuisine, world class theater, and a well-established arts scene await the CNO Chief of Nursing Services just around every corner.

Connected by Bay Area Rapid Transit and one of the nation’s best networks of buses and light-rails, it's easy to get where ever you're going.

The CNO will be supported by an extraordinary leadership team, a competitive compensation, full medical / dental / vision, and a generous benefits package.
